Hello again friends.
Just popping in to let you know what's been on my plate. Fortunately for me, it's recently been the delicious combination of meth and hot dogs!
Last night in Detroit at LIFT Gallery was the opening of the group show 'Meth & Hot Dogs 2: A Collection of Even MORE Unscrupulous Characters.' I felt right at home with this one as the curator (Kill Taupe) asked us artists to simply come up with any demented, cute, strange, whatever characters we can scrape out of our twisted skulls. He's been doing spotlights at his blog on each of the artists involved (you can view mine here), so take the time to check out ALL the amazing creators in this show (Full lineup here as well). 'Meth & Hot Dogs 2' will run throughout May.
You can check out every piece from the exhibit here with information on how to purchase them as well. My two paintings look a lot like this:
"the majenster"- 20"x 16" watercolor & ink on canvas:
"the mouth breather"- 14"x 11" watercolor & ink on gesso panel:
The folks over at Ain't It Cool News had a neat, little call for artists a few weeks back in honor of the recent release of Zach Snyder's 'Sucker Punch'. I'm a huge fan of Snyder's (Dawn of the Dead remake, 300, Watchmen..) & this movie is quite a visual-overload of crazy effects. It has robots, samurais, monsters, gun & sword wielding girlios, zombies, etc...& Nordling from AICN wanted artists to create an original piece with as many genre-mash ups as you can muster up. I went with a "Brady Bunch" theme, but didn't take the top selection. You can view my piece as well as the others here....
I'm staying busy so I'll have plenty of cool things available at my table at Austin Comic Con. Just finished a few button designs & working on new prints that will be exclusive at the Convention.
